TAFCO Equipment Company started as a partnership by three friends in 1963 when they purchased a small truck equipment company in Blue Earth, Minnesota. TAFCO was later incorporated in 1970.
TAFCO took a frameless grain trailer design was taken a step further when they designed the revolutionary Scott Steel Grain Body. By 1973, TAFCO’s steel grain body’s and truck accessories were so popular that TAFCO was in need of an additional plant. Continued on by the success of the grain body and truck accessories TAFCO had to expand once again in 1977. TAFCO became the first company in the U.S. to make aluminum running boards “Silver Stirrups” and they were a great success.
By 1978 and 1979, the farm body business was doing very well. At this time, Scott Hydraulic Hoists were designed, tested, manufactured and made available for our customers. Scott Hoists are manufactured to accommodate all types of applications from grain bodies, ensilage bodies, contractor bodies, landscaping bodies, dump trailers, gravel bodies, etc…
In 1986, Tafco acquired a ventilating fan business. Even though sales were great, Tafco sold the ventilating business to focus on truck bodies.
Tafco serves the trucking, farming, contracting and landscaping industries with a full line of quality products throughout the United States and Canada. Tafco continues to grow and expand its product lines to accommodate the demands of the industries with innovative ideas, and creating superior quality products.
